Weekly Training Recap and Goals

RECAP (7/30-8/5)

Monday –  45 minute Aerobic Base Run (3.8 miles) and 30 minutes of Motor Skill Development (high intensity short duration intervals)

Tuesday – 30 minutes elliptical

Wednesday – rest day

Thursday –  60 minute AB Run (4.86 miles) – HOLY HEAT AND HUMIDITY!

Friday – 35 minutes Elliptical (this was supposed to be a 45 minute MSD workout but the heat and the humidity were just too bad to go outside)

Saturday – rest day

Sunday – 90 minute AB Run (7.1 miles)

Overall –  I’ve been using a new training plan that focuses on heart rate training.  The Aerobic Base runs to develop endurance are done keeping my heartrate between 140-149 which definitely slows down my pace quite a bit.  It’s frustrating, but from what I understand taking the time now to train this way will be worth it in the long run (no pun intended!).

I am a bit nervous about my lack of mileage and long runs with the Disneyland Half marathon less than a month away, but the heat and humidy this past week were just unbearable. 

NEXT WEEK (8/6-8/12)

Looking forward to watching more Olympics!  How can you NOT be inspired by watching these athletes! 

Just going to keep following my new heart rate training plan and hopefully in the next few weeks I’ll start to see some results!  Definitely need to start getting to yoga more regularly again too, I miss incorporating that type of workout into my training.

  1. Keep up the intensity intervals…. best way to build your cardiovascular stamina! The Japanese discovered this several years ago….! A twenty min “intense interval workout” was better then a 1 hr. steady eddy!
    That picture of Oscar Pistorius is priceless….!
